the president or vice president biden pops up in ohio every three weeks and usually with good financial news for the state. in march ohio got a federal grant for new manufacturing center, it was the first awarded and the administration awarded ohio about $125 million in tax credits to promote clean energy. officials say sometimes good policies also end up being good politics. mitt romney also in ohio wrapping up the three-day romney/ryan bus tour there. while "the new york times" reports that the two plan to campaign more together and they did so yesterday. ryan did the first day of the tour alone and romney will lobby himself today as his running mate moves on to colorado. the latest "washington post" poll has romney down by 8 in ohio but as stephanie mentioned his campaign says it is not worried because its own internal polls are much more favorable however the campaign is refusing to release any specifics on those super secret magic ohio polls. naturally, bloomberg is polling likely voters and finds that 49% see mitt romney
campaigning in iowa and joe biden in north carolina. but nothing on romney's campaign schedule and president obama is just wrapping up some final debate prep in nevada. in ohio, early voting gets underway today. here's a look at some great video of people camping out to be able to cast their vote at the cuyahoga county board of elections. state senator nina turner was very first and said the long line is symbolic of how important voting is in ohio. cleveland mayor frank jackson also showed up for some moral support. so far 32% of republicans have requested early ballots. and 26% of democrats. and these early votes in ohio could really be symbolic. mitt romney likely will not become president unless he can take ohio. more john fuglesang coming up on the "full court press" after the break. stay with us. you're about to watch an ad message created by a current tv viewer for capella university. matter. >> i work with adults with developmental disabilities. growing up i had a single mother of four and people in the community were
in ohio, it's quite interesting. vice president biden as we reported recently is living in ohio now. and then after those polls came out, a romney advisor told "buzzfeed" that romney's internal polling they claim is within the margin of error so they're disputing that it's true. >> eliot: took a poll of two people to the margin of error is 50%. they're nowhere close in ohio. >> the polls will close. it is the nature of how elections work. >> eliot: i'm not so sure. seriously in ohio, the manufacturing base is beginning to come back. the economy is coming back and there's one overarching reason for that, the auto bailout. that issue in what we used to refer to as the rust belt has been harmful to romney. mitt romney's handling of that was fundamentally wrong. >> you look at his resume. i talked to -- everything i want he was a businessman, he was a governor. he seems like he would be the best person that could go against obama right now but i don't know what he's going to do. >> eliot: his campaign has turned

the raid as gutsy saying people don't realize what a tough call it was. he and vice president biden both advised obama against the raid because they didn't have 100% surety he was there. so i don't know what you're talking about john sununu but nice try.

doing that is really smart is trying to box mitt romney in on taxes. biden said if governor romney's plan goes into effect it could mean that every one of you would be paying more on your social security. don't you have to force mitt romney to finally give the american people some specifics. >> they haven't had a great week on that front. paul ryan said on sunday that there wasn't enough time to explain it which i think the american people may say wait a second. and they have a series of misfires and try to answer the question. i think the american people are looking for answers. if you are a teacher or a firefighter, you are thinking why am i paying a higher tax rate than this guy? >> stephanie: yeah. and i didn't think it was has bad has his last appearance on fox news where he said he hadn't actually run the numbers. >> yeah you should run those numbers. >> stephanie: yeah. jen when you heard about the 47% video, did you believe it? >> there were things as you remember -- there were pieces of that video that trickled out over the course of 24 hours, so with

like jill biden said today, the middle class has been buried for the first four years. first time i've ever agreed with joe biden. the gdp was revised downward from 1.7% growth to 1.3%. we know that another million one trillion was added to the federal debt in this fiscal year. the trend line is actually continually going down. >> eliot: in isolation, they would be problematic for an incumbent president. when you put them in context of a larger macroeconomy, the public says we understand what you've done. let me ask you this. governor romney's policies seem to be a rehash of what george w. bush wanted to do and did. and people look at it and they say this is old wine in new bottles. it didn't work before. why will it work now? >> i don't think they'll see that. in fact, the reason -- i think people will see that governor romney wants to reduce the tax and regulatory burden on families and small businesses and rather than impose this huge debt on the american people, i think people, the more they learn about this he
